NFL, RAIDERS SAY REPORTS OF MOVE RIGHT OUT OF LA-LA LAND

          L.A. City Councilmember Nate Holden, who was "ridiculed
     for stirring up a scare that the Raiders were leaving
     Oakland went even further yesterday, claiming the move is
     'imminent,'" according to Rick DelVecchio of the S.F.
     CHRONICLE.  Holden, at a news conference at the Coliseum,
     said that Raiders Owner Al Davis will "prevail" in his legal
     battles with the NFL and "as a result will win the right to
     take the team south."  Raiders Exec Assistant Al LoCasale
     said that the Raiders "are not planning to move anytime
     soon," while NFL VP/Communications Greg Aiello termed
     Holden's comments "ridiculous."  L.A. City Councilmember
     Joel Wachs: "We need the Raiders like the Titanic needed an
     iceberg" (Rick DelVecchio, S.F. CHRONICLE, 1/23).
